Why do we have to find out now? Yes it's a short schedule but it is also heavily condensed so if we don't have to rely on one guy heavily, it makes our weak goaltending less of an achilles heel. When other teams will be forcing their guy to play in back to back and 3 games in 5 night situations.
I don't see either causing a stir; Scrivens is already halfway to matching his career high in NHL games so a season as the backup would be an improvement for him Reimer lost his starting job last year and sat on the bench wile Gustafsson was less than stellar and didn't seem to whine about it. And you do get the sense that if neither outplays the other, they'd lean to Reimer due to the experience and salary factor.
